RASMUSSEN REPORTS: OBAMA REACHES TWO NEW LOWS -21 Approval Index, -12 Overall Approval


BTW, on the off chance you're wondering why your numbers are swirling down the bowl: IT'S YOUR AGENDA, STUPID!!!!


Tuesday, December 22, 2009

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President (see trends).

Fifty-three percent (53%) of men Strongly Disapprove along with 39% of women. Most African-American voters (58%) Strongly Approve while most white voters (53%) Strongly Disapprove.

Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans Strongly Disapprove as do 52% of unaffiliated voters. Forty-seven percent (47%) of Democrats Strongly Approve.

For the second straight days, the update shows the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President. That negative rating had never topped 42% before yesterday. However, it has risen dramatically since the Senate found 60 votes to move forward with the proposed health care reform legislation. Most voters (55%) oppose the health care legislation and senior citizens are even more likely than younger voters to dislike the plan.

One bright spot in the numbers for the President is that 51% of voters still say former President George W. Bush is more to blame for the nation’s economic woes. Just 41% point the finger of blame at the current President.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.

Overall, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Fifty-six percent (56%) now disapprove.

  1. Remember, there are three exclamation points following "STUPID", vis...


    Heh. Thanks LA.

  2. Obama might be able to recover. Libertarians need to keep up the noise. Check out the message from Jesus Christ, libertarian:

  3. And getting lower. Should be lower still after the Homeland Security "isolated incident" debacle.

  4. I'm glad the country is slowly starting to awake. Only three more years of this nonsense. I certainly cannot wait.
